--------------------------------

Because Jane Reid epitomises all that is glorious about the state of spinsterhood and, in particular, the freedom to form and maintain friendship of the rarest, most courageous and most lasting kind.

Cam, a spinster herself, is no stranger to such friendship. And when she embarks on a novel to celebrate the greatness of her friend and teacher, Jane's honesty and compassion, and the freedom peculiar to spinsterhood arrest her imagination.

Cam sifts through memories and impressions and Jane - her work with orphans in Normandy in 1918 and with families in Bremen after World War II, her great ability as a teacher - and along the way she rediscovers a whole emotional landscape of her own which has lain buried for almost 60 years.

This was my introduction to May Sarton. I especially enjoyed
the book for what I learned about her. This is both a gentle
and passionate story.
